Published: December 1, 1994

Cantonment Creek rises southwest of Laketon in northeastern Gray County (at 35°32' N, 100°41' W) and runs southeast for ten miles to its mouth on the North Fork of the Red River, near Farm Road 1321 (at 35°24' N, 100°37' W). It begins in flat to rolling terrain surfaced by deep, fine sandy loams that support hardwood forest, brush, and grasses, and crosses into flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
